Cobble Hill, British Columbia
Welcome to the Cobble Hill Hops website
Tracy and her farming partner and long time friend Jenn enjoy spending time out amongst the rows getting hands-on with the plants and the land, giving the hops a hand-raised distinction that we know adds to the quality of the beautiful hops bines we produce. The joy of growing hops is not for the faint of heart and must begin with a love of spending your days in the field immersed in nature. Fortunately we both love the spiritual connection the feeling of soil in our hands brings us, and the sense of achievement we feel when our hops morph each season from crowning rhizome to soaring bine of over 18 feet (almost 6 Meters) high. The effort and time involved in nurturing premium hops is a labour of love and patience. It is this confluence of human endeavour and the seasonal progression from emerging shoots to fragrant forests of dazzling greens and seemingly Elysian cones that makes the time in the fields so gratifying.
In 2015 proprietors Dan and Tracy stumbled onto the mystical idea of becoming farmers. Actually the idea had always been inviting and mystical to Tracy, Dan being a wonderful husband agreed to help make it so. With the region already brimming with fruit crop and livestock farms, Dan and Tracy decided on a uniquely beautiful and fragrant seasonal perennial that they hoped would make the most of the diverse spaces they had available around the existing farm property.
With over 700 plants in the ground and seven uniquely different varieties available, we have a beautiful and fragrant hop to bring your creative vision to fruition.
A hop bine is composed of two or three stems that have grown and twisted up a long central string. Fresh hop bines are supple and can be easily draped and twined into position and left to dry out naturally. Hanging the cut bines is easy – simply hook the stems or string over a nail. The bines are very light when dry so weight is not a problem and come attached to their coconut coir string which adds to their beauty and functionality or can be easily removed.
Small cut stems of hop cones come in a variety of options and all orders are custom designed to meet your creative needs. It is inviting to not only see hops as a long garland-like item, for when cut correctly, hops in short segments are the perfect addition for any design.
Custom orders accepted, available August – early October. Large wreath shown but smaller wreaths available upon request.
Whole unpressed hop flowers for hop sachets, pillows, tinctures, etc.
